check out HEIDIS blog for this months FNSI winner. as i stated before, im on vacation :)
I have some more photos to share with you of my quilt. as i said in my previous post, i was able to finish my Happy Campers quilt before my trip. in this post, i shared some yarn tie pics. well, let me say i learned a valuable lesson about yarn tying. (Did anyone notice the difference in the color of the yarn?)
I had originally done the entire quilt in a nice brown yarn. it took me days....and i was leery on the color (brown) after just a few rows, but was too lazy to change. the brown took away from my fabric....but that wasn't the issue. i used a super soft yarn....and when i washed it a bunch came UN-TIED! ARGHHH!
of course this happened the night before i left for vacation. so when i got to my sisters in Montana, she helped me cut out the brown ties and we used a simple off white color in polyester yarn. a big THANKS to my sister for helping me because i was devastated!
here is a shot of the back. all i used was a denim and a strip of the fabric on the lower half. it was NICE and WARM!!!
the back of her quilt. WOW! LOVE LOVE what she did with the panel and even appliqued a daisy on the strip. A-Dorable!
my hubby, my son and I with our walking sticks at Glacier. they have a bell on them to keep the bears away :) .... which got a little annoying. LOL
What a way to spend my anniversary huh? in gods country!
Glacier is truly one of the most beautiful places i have ever been too. The natural rivers, the going to the sun road, the walking trails, the nature and even the snow in mid July.
